NBC to Reboot 'Rosemary's Baby' and 'The Tommyknockers' as Miniseries

According to IGN writer Eric Goldman, NBC is planning a reboot of Rosemary’s Baby, Roman Polanski’s 1968 horror classic, as a miniseries. They will also be remaking Stephen King’s horror/sci-fi novel and 1993 miniseries, The Tommyknockers, into one as well.

There is no arguing about the success of the miniseries lately. With shows like History Channel’s The Bible and other Stephen King adaptations such as Bag of Bones and Under the Dome, it is easy to see why NBC is looking to make something of their own.

NBC has enlisted Scott Abbot as the writer for Rosemary’s Baby, as well as Joshua Maurer, David Stern, Perri Kipperman, and Alix Witlin as executive producers. According to Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice, NBC’s Bob Greenblatt described the reboot as “a young husband and wife living in Paris where this edge-of-your-seat thriller unfolds.”

As for The Tommyknockers, Frank Konisberg and Larry Sanitsky have signed on as Executive Producers, with multiple award-winner Yves Simoneau set to direct.

Along with a miniseries about Hillary Clinton and a follow up to The Bible, Rosemary’s Baby and The Tommyknockers should be appearing soon in NBC’s upcoming season lineups, although no air dates are available at this point.

Hopefully, this will be a good turn for the TV network considering their struggle with low ratings within the last few years.
